Did you guess the side of a Desert Horny Toad Lizard? If you did, you were right!
How neat is that? We saw him on a hike we took up in Sedona on Mother's Day. The only reason we were able to see him is I was taking photos of cactus flowers (hence looking down) and he scurried by.
He would have fit in the palm of my hand and is rockin' some serious camouflage don't you think...
That camouflage is probably the reason I've never seen one in the wild, even though I've lived in Arizona all my life.
Another photo I took on the hike - the desert is alive with color right now.
I think this tiny cactus looks like it's holding up its flowers with pride.
Made me smile.
I'm having a rather large garage sale this weekend that I am decidedly unprepared for.
This means I'm checking out of blogland until next week.
